Inspired Tuesday: Marie Antoinette and princesse de Lamballe advertise for Petrole Hahn

Inspired Tuesday: a day to share anything and everything inspired by Marie Antoinette and her world.

Petrole Hahn is a French-based company that has been in operation for over 100 years. Their primary claim to fame is hair-based products, including shampoos, conditioners and other rinses. Like many businesses at the time, Petrole Hahn employed postcards and trading cards as part of their outreach advertisement campaign. These two cards depicting the princesse de Lamballe and Marie Antoinette were from a particular collectible set featuring notable French royals, aristocrats, and even revolutionaries.
